Compact size and low cost makes Versatec's Versacolor fit in just about every system. B-size convenience. By simply changing the media and donor roll (as easy as loading paper in a copy machine), the same plotter you used for producing reports can be used for plotting engineering drawings, integrated circuit layouts, printed circuit boards, solids modeling or scientific research. Handy B-size (11" x17") or A3 (297 mm x 420 mm) drawings are created in one minute in color or in less than 20 seconds in monochrome. Many users need B-size drawings 20-30% of the time so by having one plotter produce both sizes, you save investing in two output devices. Simple operation. In thermal transfer plotting, an ink donor roll is coated with a translucent wax-based ink. As the donor roll and media pass over the thermal print head, small dots are trans- ferred to the media. Yellow, magenta and cyan ink panels are in sequence on the donor media and one color is printed on each pass. All three primaries are used to create a crisp black. The ink is translucent enabling seven colors to be formed by overlaying the three primary colors. Hard copy emerges ready for use and will not fade over time. And, it is easy to change from opaque media to clear polyester film. It is as simple as changing paper in a copying machine. Media is crisp cut sheet— no tractor feed holes to remove when issuing reports or to snag when filing. Output is stacked in an upright position on top of the unit— for convenient retrieval. Replacing or changing donor cartridges is as simple as loading a video cassette recorder. Simply remove the donor cartridge, add the new donor roll and then insert the cartridge. Typically it takes less than 20 seconds.
